    Welcome aboard Jay
    The diff. between the 320 and the 330 is the 330 has more line capacity and is 5.5 oz heavier. They are both available in a LD (lever drag model also).There site is pennreels.com

    I appreciate the help, quick replies......... the gto reel is ok to use in saltwater correct? How about the gt2 reels, the websights "kinda "specified they could be, yet not sure they should be LoL

    I would think any reel can be used in salt water as long as ya maintain it properly. For example a real good rinse after each trip. I beleive there is a tutorial in the Library for this.

    Welcome to the B.O.C. Jay! I have a pen 320 lever drag amd it is an awesome reel. I would think the 330 would be over kill. If my 320 ever gets spooled you all will for sure hear about it!

    I use the 320 GT2 reels. They have a lot of cranking power but don't cast as smooth as some of the other reels.

    not completely true....the smaller reels made of magnesium(body/sideplates) are NOT to be used in salt water......the magnesium cant stand up to it....i believe shimano makes a salt safe magnesium reel however..
